This recipe is quick and easy. I found it years ago, but didn't use it until I started raising my own strawberries. Once the berries ripen in spring, I always make this pie to take to church dinners. It's really popular!
"WE STILL GO OUT to the strawberry farms to pick our own berries for this pie, and a delicious one it is!
"This pie was a family favorite while I was growing up, and it has become the same with my own family, which is nearly all grown.
"Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits, and when they're in season, you can bet this is a treat we have often!"
The attractive pie, with its fresh fruit flavor and flaky crust, is my mom's signature dessert. She has perfected the recipe over the years. Served with a dollop of whipped cream, this is a dessert you'll serve again and again.
This recipe was handed down to me by my mother. It's so easy to make and always gets compliments. I like topping the nutty meringues with strawberries at Christmas, and I use peaches during the summer.

My mother treated us to strawberry desserts each spring, and this was the one we always looked forward to. I tried making it with the chocolaty cookie crust and now make it that way all the time. It's a winner. —Judith Kapcsos

This elegant after-dinner sweet, created by our Test Kitchen, lives up to its name. With pretty strawberries, a creamy filling and flaked coconut on top, it takes a little extra care to put together, but the results are well worth it.
